For this pair work, my pair was Hui En! (I was so excited to pair with her. YAY!)
Both of us share similar memories about our class. So we wanted to portray that in our 3D model.
The keyword from the mind map are togetherness, discovery and future.
The scent the we are going for is tea and coffee, as it makes us stay awake in class or at night (during submission weeks). So me and Hui En went to survey our class – Do you prefer tea or coffee?. And the answer was 50% coffee, 50% tea.
So we went to research more on the scent of coffee and tea.
From my research (image above), coffee scent has different intensity level and tea scent helps to relax a person’s mind.
Coffee scent are smell when its brewing and there are range of colours to it – brown, dark brown to black. And tea are normally served in glass cups.
From Huien’s research, tea and coffee can be associated with each other. This can be linked to our memories as a class, like having outfit-of-the-day together and also lunch. Huien also mention that although each individual is different, we can still mingle around and look out for each other.
For the planer part, we wanted to do something that is going up to represent soar, take flight and going up. As that is what will happen to each of us (G6) when we separated into our majors.
Light & Shadow
At first when we discussed about our ideation, Huien mention that she wanted to do something different. So we decided to play with lighting and shadow. Instead of having the number 6 (representation of G6) in our model, we thought of having the 6 cast on shadows. Why the number 6? Because 6 symbolise completeness, high ideals and luck which brings back to our memory as a class.
Material – Paper
We thought of using papers because
- Easy to make planar
- Paper is flat hence we can experiment and explore it to create into 3D
Shell (white paper) represent love and protection. Our shell spirals upwards. This is to show that we believe in each individual, in our class, to continue to improve and strive for the best (which represents the spirals going upwards).
Number 6 represent completeness and high ideals, which then refer back to our class. Some weeks we would wear outfit-of-the-day together and go lunch together.
Gold is use for coffee. It is in loops to show that coffee has different intensity. Sliver is use for tea as the tea scent lingers for a while and it will then diffuse into the air.
I like the concept of using lighting and shadow, however it was not executed well especially when it is being wear. That’s why we could not cast the shadows during the runway.
